How To Get Good at Addiction

Dave Chappelle

Food, sex, and money.

Work, weight loss, religion, shopping,  and the internet.

Pills, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, gambling, television, relationships, and video games.

You name it; we’re hooked on it.

We’re an obsessed culture.

We’re addicts.

Fiends, digging through dumpsters, hoping to get poked by a loaded needle.

We need help, don’t you agree?

They say, […]



Galileo suspected the earth was round, so they almost killed him.

A 13 year old kid grabbed a piece of wire and had his grandma put padding on the ends to protect his ears from the cold. His friends made fun of him, flung snow balls at his face, and laughed while they did […]

Hey all, it’s been a while since I’ve checked in so I thought I’d let you know I’m still alive. If you’ve been keeping up to speed, you know there are some big changes happening in the Fuentes family household lately.

happily unemployed

The day started as usual.

I waltzed in 30 minutes late, sat at my desk, ate breakfast, distracted my co-workers, and intended to surf the internet all day.

What The Lorax Can Teach Us about Economics (and Saving The World)


Can you believe I’ve yet to read The Lorax by Dr. Seuss? I know, crazy right? And if you haven’t either you really should.

Big sister Ruby and baby Luna

I like reading but hardly ever finish a book.

Fiction […]

You’re looking up at the ceiling and you know what […]

Do Nothing

I love Patrick Star

This week I’m taking a break.


Because I’ve been thinking too much.

About what direction I want to take with qwitr.
